Zach Werenski sacrificed his face to stop a Phil Kessel shot, only to see the Penguins score anyway moments later as Bryan Rust got the puck past Sergei Bobrovsky while blood poured from the Blue Jackets defenseman’s visage. It’s bad times in Columbus, as Pittsburgh has tied it up 3-3.
A flustered, stuttering phlebotomist once pointed out to me that men, left to nature, would never get a glimpse of their own blood except for in instances of trauma, and that this probably explains why men are notoriously squeamish about having their blood drawn. He told me this while I was leaning over and grabbing…
Trevor Bauer tried to pitch in Game 3 of the ALCS this evening despite a fucked up finger. He made it 21 pitches and two outs into the game before the dam burst and he started bleeding everywhere. His hand looks like art from “Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark.”
Neymar came off late in Brazil’s match against Bolivia tonight, not because the reigning Olympic champions were winning by a large margin—which they were—but because the Barcelona star suffered an injury that made his head bleed like Gretzky.
Several times a year—five if I can—I get stuck by a needle. A friendly hand hunts the crooks of both my elbows for a vein fat enough to poke, swabs it down with iodine, and dabs the spot with a marker as if it were a treasure map. Depending on whether or not I’m in the mood for sterile and unthreatening gore, I either…
Jefry Marte lost the handle on his bat late in tonight’s loss to the A’s, and it delivered an enormous gash to umpire Paul Emmel’s head. Emmel left the game, leaving a shorthanded crew to call the final out.
Early this morning in Orlando, 50 people were shot dead and 53 more wounded at a nightclub in Orlando. Whether you’re local or not, here’s how you can help, or at least find a vigil to attend, like-minded people to be with, or seek a little peace.
2006 Olympic gold medalist Brad Gushue was rushed to a hospital today in Nova Scotia after a fall left him gushing blood all over the ice at the Grand Slam of Curling.
Here’s some fun coverage from the Uruguayan premier league, with C.A. Fenix back José Ignacio Pallas getting a knee to his nose as reward for some tough defending. The result: blood gushing from multiple places! (He quickly returned to the match.)
At the Lexus Cup of China, the International Skating Union's Grand Prix of Figure Skating, there was a real humdinger of a bell-ringer between China's Han Yan and Japan's Yuzuru Hanyu in warmups. YouTube shows both men gliding backwards at concussion-ready speeds and turning into one another, chin-to-noggin, too…
Unlike Antonio Valencia yesterday, Zenit's Tomas Hubocan was looking more Jake LaMotta than Rocky after Robert Lewandowski opened a vein with an unfortunately well-timed knee to the side of the head. Soccer is a blood sport.
A mere 23 people were injured during the most recent running of the bulls, which somehow is still a thing people do. The Associated Press has a gruesome rundown of the misfortunes that befell these silly twats, many of whom collided and bottlenecked at the entrance to the bull ring. Bulls then trampled, hurdled and…
Andrew Shaw was the Game 1 hero, but that's not what he does. He's a pest. An agitator. A player who gets his hands dirty, and his face bloody, and raises a Cup.
I don't know why you'd want this unless you planned to clone Jeff Samardzija, but hey: we don't judge.
Senators defenseman Eric Gryba may be looking at a league suspension after his hit in the second period of tonight's matchup in Montreal left the Canadiens' Lars Eller bloodied and motionless on the ice.
Tennessee knocked off #8 Florida last night 64-58, and it was an unhappy homecoming for Casey Prather even before the final buzzer sounded. The junior Gators guard and Tennessee native earned a nasty gash to the face late in the game, in the process possibly taking on his third concussion of the season.
